    It's a small business version of Gateway C-140. Up to 2.4GHz Santa Rosa C2D, ATi X2300 HD GPU (rather ****ty, but best you can get for a TPC), up to 4GB of RAM (they charge you $700 for that so you are better off getting the same kind of SODIMMs from Newegg for $100 and installing yourself), a 7200RPM HDD option, WXGA 14.1" LCD and Wacom UD digitizer.

    That would be the Gateway C140XL, which has dedicated (but not DX10) graphics and a 14" screen. If you go for integrated, I would say Lenovo x61t or Fujitsu 4220 (depending on your priorities between dual mode touchscreen and optical drive+touchpad). Other than that, there are companies that make custom digitizers for specific notebook screen sizes that you could apply onto a regular notebook screen, which means you could in theory get a quad core Sager with SLi, a top notch XPS or Alienware and just apply the digitizer on the screen. Unfortunately I don't know who exactly these companies are, I've just stumbled across them on various youtube videos demonstrating 3D desktops/Beryl/Bumptop etc...

    see the post above you.. The XL version is STILL underpowered compared to the customizable models at MPC's site.

    There you can get a T7700 processor which will beat the T5450 processor on the XL model.

    Shogmaster, thank you for that site, which was incredibly useful, and fairly priced too, for what they offered.

    Quantum, thanks for the response too.

    Is MCP categorically the best place to get the most powerful tablet ? ( I think it is, from what I've seen)

    Kind Regards

    Ozzy

    Well, I'd say it's the next best thing to e-bay and sellers here. Definitely more reliable though (than e-bay that is).

    @****car - thanks for the correction, I should pay more attention to the info I provide, as I have often failed to differentiate between the c140 series and the offerings at the mpc site...

    Is this still true? MPC still has the most powerful tablet?

    Right now i think its considered the 2nd most powerful to the HP tx2500,(b/c of the ATI HD 3200 Graphic card it has) and there is no need to buy the Gateway from MPC. You have more customization from MPC, but they are more expensive.

    You can buy the Gateway c142xl (with Penryn processor) directly from Gateway.

    Yes I was just at the Gateway site and saw that i can get a Gateway® C-142XL for like $1200! That's incredible!
    Would you know about it's digitizer? I have an Motion LE1600 and I love how it draws but the processor and graphics plus the memory is not enough for my current needs. Would the Gateway® C-142XL be better than that or at least the same?
